Day 9: Hitting the Bump of Un-sustainable?
After nine days, life has caught up. I am busy, cranky, and just wanted a slice of pizza. I didn’t want to get home after a long day and cook. But somehow after a 3 mile walk through Central Park, I found my groove. But I am starting to think this lifestyle thing may be a little unsustainable. It’s not all a walk in the park. But I am hoping that after 40 days it’s easier.
I read an article recently about how women try to be wonder women, but the reality is that our time and resources are limited. My apartment is a bit of a mess, I haven’t put on makeup all week, and I haven’t read any books lately. But I have prioritized this lifestyle change as priority number one. I might have to outsource the apartment cleaning for a while.
Day 9 menu:
Breakfast: the usual smoothie
Lunch: Lentil Soup- see day 8 for recipe
Snack: strawberries and raw almonds
Dinner: carrots and beet salad with grilled steak and avocado. I marinated the steak with lime, pepper, onions, garlic and pepper.
Dessert: lemon-strawberry slushy. Squeeze one lemon into the blender, add a few strawberries, water and ice.
